dorkbot anglia ten

Tuesday 19th February 2013, 7:30-10pm
The Cut, New Cut, Halesworth, Suffolk IP19 8BY

dorkbot anglia is a regular evening of talks and conversations with "people doing strange things with electricity" in the East Anglian area. We are delighted to announce our tenth meeting as the guests of The Cut, Halesworth on Tuesday 19th February. Entry is free.

The Cut is a thriving arts centre which aims to be the number one creative community hub for rural north-east Suffolk. Last year the basement space was refurbished as a Media Lab for education and training in the creative digital technologies. There are courses for business, the local community and young people.

Simon Raven of The Cut will introduce:

  • Pamela Harling-Challis a dance/digital artist who utilises her expertise in theatrical production to create performance and installations in arts and educational settings. Pamela's talk will include discussion of And on the seventh day‚Ķ an installation of 12 films for iPods, the film Five Panels and No 5 music by Monty Adkins.
  • David Chatting a thinker and a maker, who uses technology and design to explore mundane futures. David will discuss some of his most recent work, including Running Lives with Data, where he attempted to hack runners.
  • Bill Thompson a sound and video artist, who is a self-described throwback to the 60s and enjoys breaking things to hear what they sound like. Bill's talk, Caveman Electronics, will involve his recent projects Shifting Currents and CRA/CKED for misused electronics.

Plus, "OpenDorks" (short ad-hoc slots for anyone to talk about their work)
